MEDNAX, which provides a wide range of medical services in Florida through affiliated practices, has made two more acquisitions as it continues to expand its breadth in the state.

The company has acquired Medical Anesthesia Consultants (MAC), a private physician group practice based in Florence, South Carolina, and Anesthesia Associates of Naples, a private physician group practice based in Naples, Florida.

MAC, which was established in 2007, is a private practice that employs 20 anesthesiologists and provides anesthesia care across a wide spectrum of subspecialty areas including pediatrics, high-risk obstetrics, thoracic, cardiovascular, urology, neuro-anesthesia, orthopedics and acute pain management for post-operative pain.

The practice is a provider of services to multiple facilities within the McLeod Health system including McLeod Regional Medical Center, McLeod Seacoast, McLeod Loris, McLeod Dillon and McLeod Health Cheraw.

“It’s ideal that we can maintain our clinical autonomy but be relieved of managing complex business and regulatory requirements,” said Gerald Hamrick, a doctor, who will serve as a medical director for the practice.

“In addition, engaging in MEDNAX’s research, education and quality initiatives will help us further enhance the care we deliver.”

This acquisition adds to the services MEDNAX provides through its affiliated practices at McLeod Health which include neonatology, pediatric intensive care and newborn hearing screen, and in SC across multiple specialties including anesthesia, neonatology, newborn hearing screening, pediatric intensive care and radiology.
